SUSCEPTIBILITY REACTION OF CARNATION CULTIVARS TO FUSARIUM OXYSPORUM F.SP. DIANTHI IN AN INFESTED FIELD AND IN SPORE SUSPENSION *
In conclusion, by root dip inoculation in a spore suspension, it is possible to distinguish between highly susceptible and tolerant cultivars. However, in order to determine the degree of tolerance, it is necessary to test the cultivars in a field naturally or artificially infested with F.o.d. propagules.
